4x Michigan HS Champ Annette Schultz Verbally Commits to Louisville

Annette Schultz of Dexter High School and Dexter Community Aquatic Club (DCAC) has announced her verbal commitment to the University of Louisville. Schultz is a sprint freestyler and backstroker, and she’s won four individual Michigan Division II titles.


  • 100 free 50.01
  • 200 free 1:47.89
  • 100 back 54.71
  • 200 back 1:58.66

Schultz is the 2x defending Michigan Division II champion in both the 100 free and 200 free, having won both races in 2015 as a sophomore and then again in 2016 as a junior.

With her best times, Schultz would’ve scored in C finals in the 200 free and 200 back at the 2017 ACC Championships. Her strengths address a lineup hole for Louisville, which has struggled to build a deep backstroke group and mid-distance free group of late. For example, Louisville only had 2 scorers in the 100 back and 2 in the 200 back at ACCs last season, while Mallory Comerford was the only ACC 800 relay split faster than 1:46 (though she was very fast herself at 1:41.12).

Schultz will get a year of training alongside Comerford, a year with backstroker Alina Kendzior, and three seasons with current freshman backstroker Ashlyn Schoof.

She joins Kelly Tichenor and Alena Kraus in Louisville‘s class of 2022.
